Ronny Turiaf is returning to Spokane – at least for a day or two. The former fan-favorite member of the basketball team will join 47 other student athletes at Gonzaga's commencement ceremonies at Spokane Arena on Sunday. Turiaf, who is currently a member of the Golden State Warriors NBA team, will receive his degree in Sport Management from Gonzaga. After playing out his eligibility at Gonzaga, Turiaf was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers and spent his first three seasons there until signing with Golden State in 2008. Turiaf underwent heart surgery in July 2005 when Lakers doctors discovered he had an enlarged aortic root. He rejoined the team six months after surgery and played 23 games for the Lakers to close out the 2006 season/SWX. More here.
Question: Ronny Turiaf, with his enthusiasm and ability, may be my all-time favorite Zag. How about you?
